This is what I have discovered over the years. It's generally not worth bothering training people to trade because of a few different things... 1. They have too much fear. I had a friend recently who was interested in learning to trade but he's just got too much fear. He's not going to be able to manage a position properly... Say he enters a trade At a resistance level and the market moves higher. Even on paper he panics out and can't hold his ground to exit on the retracement. Look at the attachment. This is yesterday. A good trader will strategically reposition himself if the market is moving against him slowly, while a bad trader will just panic out into the high... 2. They don't understand they have to trade what the market gives them... If it's trending, you must trade like it's trending. If it's a slow range trade you must trade like it's range trading. Instead they try to scalp tiny moves instead of playing the game the market is playing... These are some key flaws people have... There are a few others too but these are real important. They just don't understand that the market moves in a continual retracement cycle in a slow trend because pro traders are following rules as the market trades along. They take profits into euphoria/resistance and hit the bid into fear/support... If the market is in a slow trend there is no reason to panic out of position when the market moves against you a little bit. Just reposition the next minor trade cycle... If the market is moving with a 5 handle range, it's best to trade with a stop that matches the range. That allows you to reposition yourself instead of having the stop be hit. Manage your position as the market moves... Don't just let it hit stops. Just re-adjust your position next trade cycle.
